Orlando and Central Florida (June 26 2015) — Averett Warmus Durkee (AWD) – accountants specializing in the timeshare resort industry in addition to other businesses – announced that the not-for-profit organization Opportunity, Community, Ability (OCA) presented the first annual “Sandi Breitenstein Volunteer of the Year Award” in honor of Sandi Breitenstein. Breitenstein was a shareholder of the firm until she passed away earlier this year. The award was presented during the organization’s annual “Last Day of Freedom” fundraiser.
OCA was founded by parents, teachers, therapists and members of the community to assist school-aged children and adults with Autism and other disabilities who need more opportunities to engage in age-appropriate activities with their typical peers.
“It will be awarded to an individual or company who exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism as Sandi did throughout her life,” said Silvia Haas, executive director of OCA.
Recipients receive the flame of hope award and have their names added to a plaque displayed at OCA’s main campus.
“Sandi is greatly missed,” observed AWD Partner Tom Durkee. “She was not only extremely proficient at her work, but also very active in giving back her time and talents to the community. We’re pleased to see her name on this award that exemplifies her generous and loving spirit.”
